Why Choose Us?
The North East Best Value Independent Home & Garden Retailer
The company has been serving the public for over 80 years, founded in 1932 by Jack Maxwell, a cabinet maker, who opened a small shop in Durham City.
Expansion resulted in a move to Sunderland in 1946, where he rebuilt bomb-damaged premises in Vine Place.
As the family business grew, Jack’s son, John Donald Maxwell – known as Don - took over the management of the business in the mid-sixties, and started to expand the company with more branches opening over the next couple of decades; first in Jarrow, then Fulwell, and on to both South and North Shields, Newcastle, Gateshead, and Birtley.
Don officially retired in 1992 but still works for the company to this day! Jack’s grandsons, are still carrying the flame, and upholding the same family values of supplying quality products, coupled with exceptional customer service.
